The ranking-favorite of the Women’s Student Grandmaster Memorial of A. Pochinok is the RSSU final-year student Alina Kashlinskaya. The Moscow grandmastert told the correspondent of the official Moscow Open 2015, RSSU Cup website, what mood she has at the threshold of the stuggle and how she manages to combine her studies with the chess carrier.
- My spirits are pugnacious. I haven’t played in the tournaments with classical time control for quite a long time: I played just one game in the Bundesleague after the Super Final of the Russian Championship. That’s why I’ve missed chess much after such a long break and I want to show good manner of play. I don’t set any goals, just want to play with dignity and as everybody knows good play leads to good resulats.
- Do you know your opponents good? Have you played against them before?
- In principle, I know most of them, though I can’t say we face each other often in different tournaments.
